I’m totally engulfed in excitement at this weekend’s England Vs Wales Six Nations match on Sunday! I have got so excited that I’ve bought the latest England rugby shirt. Where ever you are watching rugby in the world, there will always be a couple of Welsh people. Despite there sometimes small number they seem to have a special gift for making their presence known and showing their devoted patriotism, this is why I feel it is my duty to sport the red rose, on the best and most English of shirts, this important sporting weekend!
The new shirt is the bee’s knees, it’s made by Cantebury again and they show this with the CCC logo embroidered on the chest as well as the all important rose. It’s a traditional shirt being all white with just the added detail of navy sleeve cuffs that give it a great look. It’s made of breathable polyester, so whether you’re playing a game or just getting very hot and stressed watching a conversion attempt this weekend, it’s going to keep you cool! My favourite feature is Canterbury’s 21.3 collar design which feels great and very comfortable to wear, as well as looking very strong. The whole shirt has such a well made and quality look and feel, I’m definitely going to be wearing it all year round!
The match between these two great teams last year was something that I hope never gets repeated again, an embarrassing whooping that ruined our chances of Six Nations glory. Last year we were in the home of the dragon (Cardiff) where at least this year we will have the home advantage, at the sporting colosseum of Twickenham, so we might have a slight edge there. England seem to be performing well so far this year and I’m looking forward to seeing what Cornish boy Jack Nowell has to offer too! Below I’ve put the video highlights of last year’s depressing defeat, have a watch, get angry and get ready for revenge on Sunday!
